Moto X

It doesn't have the largest screen or the best specs but its size and features make the Moto X one of the most exciting Android phones on the market, and a potentially great gift. Motorola managed to make the Moto X roughly the same size as the iPhone 5s but put a larger, 4.5-inch screen on it. The team also included some unique features like always-on voice recognition and an easy way to view notifications even when the screen is locked.

At $330 off contract until Valentine's Day, the Moto X is one of the cheapest phones available. And there's a variety of wood-back options that really set it apart from all other smartphones.
